A number of roads have been closed near the scene of a bomb alert in south Belfast.

Army bomb experts are dealing with a suspicious package in the grounds of a bar near the King's Hall on Lisburn Road.

The railway line between Great Victoria Street and Lisburn is also closed.

Hundreds of Royal Irish Regiment soldiers and Irish Guards are due to take part in a homecoming parade at the hall on Friday afternoon.
